In the latest artwork by Banksy, a young boy is depicted choosing a nurse as the superhero he wants to play with over Batman and Spiderman and discarded into a dustbin. The artist is trying to pay his heartfelt gratitude that Britons have felt towards the country’s National Health Service during the coronavirus crisis.
The painting by the secretive street artist was unveiled at University Hospital Southampton, in south England, on Wednesday. An image of the work was also posted on Banksy’s Instagram page with the caption “Game Changer”.
Hospital chief executive Paula Head said, “So proud to reveal this amazing piece of art Painting for Saints, created by Banksy as a thank you to all those who work with and for the NHS and our hospital.” “An inspirational backdrop to pause and reflect in these unprecedented times,” she added on Twitter.
